It is revised and upgraded recently to make it even easier to set up the entire SOBA sample stack with Java 8 + Maven + Eclipse + DB (MySQL or PostgreSQL or SQL Server or Oracle) + Tomcat 8 (or any other servlet engine) on Windows or Mac OS X or Linux. All components are up-to-date, e.g., with latest Spring framework 4.2.0 + Spring-security 4.0.2 + Hibernate 5.0.1.Final, and many more. In addition, the author is committed to providing fast support via email.
Some readers prefer "learning by reading," and some prefer"learning by coding." This book is written based on the author'sbelief that "reading is learning, but learning by coding is betterlearning." While taking a code-intensive approach, this book providesadequate textual descriptions to help readers grasp every Spring featurepresented in the book. It is a strong plus that it is not as verbose or aswordy as other Spring books so that a reader can finish it within a reasonabletimeframe. After spending 2-3 weeks completing your self-paced training withthis book, you will be able to start contributing to your Spring-basedenterprise application project immediately. It will also be considerably easierfor you to read the lengthy Spring reference documentations and other verboseSpring books.
